6.5 Creedmore is just the 6.5 x 54 MS (Greek) of 1900, ballistically.  They may have got things right about 120 years ago!

You might even argue it parallels the 6.5 x 53R Mannlicher (Dutch and Romanian) of 1892 and 1895!

However, swooning over the newly is better for business, and besides, sells more rifles.

True - not much new in cartridges these days. What’s new is the marketing that big companies can use to sell their new wonder cartridge, ammo, brass, rifles, etc. Hornady have a winner with their Creedmoor marketing, and who can blame them if people buy it?

Haha, listen to you two old dinosaurs Smiley It's called progress. Don't fear it, embrace it. Think about it next time at the dentist when you get a filling how it would have been 1892, 1895 or 1900 and you will start to like it suddenly  Grin

😀👍
But I do admit to being an old dinosaur.

If you want a cool little 6.5 with target shooting pedigree, short case (shorter than Creedmoor), long neck, renowned for being unfussy with loads, small rifle primer, Lapua cases, high psi capability, up to 20 reloads per case, the 6.5 x 47 Lapua would be my choice.
